Detail

This guidance is intended to help landlords and sellers understand their responsibility for making Energy Performance Certificates available when renting out or selling a domestic property. It takes into account changes arising from the ‘recast’ of the Directive, effective from 9 January 2013, and now reflects subsequent amendments to regulations.

This guidance also outlines what tenants and buyers should expect to receive when they begin the process of renting or buying a domestic property.
